Overall Impression

The 4th in the "Viva! Origami" series, this is another large compilation of models from all over the world, in a whole variety of subjects. The models explore, in large part, traditional figures and methods, putting a new spin and new interpretations on them to create new compositions. The traditional cup turns into a penguin, a box turns into a shelf, and many more such examples. A featured subject is books - folded by many creators, in many different styles.
